3 thoughts on “Stockton Tram Depot c1900

    • Close inspection of old photos of the tram depots at Stockton and Norton show one has an odd number of sections on each gate (with the bottom point of the shields in the centre of a section) while the other has an even number of sections per gate (with the bottom point if the shield level with a vertical bar on the gate). Cross checking with the gates as they are now at the park shows they are the ones from Stockton rather than Norton.


  1. An extract in a Robinson family letter states ‘Mrs.Collins lived in Lanehouse Road. Her husband was Chief of the tramways. Their son married a Jenny Boyes who lived in Langley Avenue’. This would be in the early 1900s.
